The Top Ten
1 Kim Hyun-joong Kim Hyun-Joong is a South Korean entertainer, actor, singer, dancer, and the leader and main rapper of boyband SS501.

Kim Hyun Joong has a voice that takes you away. He is a talented singer and musician. He's the best I've heard. He continually grows as an artist. The Gemini band can't be left out. They are a great band, and together with Kim Hyun Joong, they bring us masterpieces. I love the music and am enjoying watching as KHJ grows and evolves. He is a great visionary. I feel blessed to watch him become the major talent that he is.

KHJ is different from anyone else out there. He's able to pull off many different kinds of music and is often involved in composing himself. You can tell he enjoys himself when performing, and his passion comes out best when singing rock.

He is very handsome. His voice is so cool that I always listen to his songs and watch his movies. I love him. I'm a super fan of him! Thanks.

2 Seo Taiji
3 G-Dragon

He is a nice guy, and he has a nice voice.

He has the cutest high voice when singing and the most amazing rap voice, unlike any other.

4 BIGBANG Big Bang is a South Korean boy band formed by YG Entertainment. The group consists of 4 members: G-Dragon, T.O.P, Taeyang, and Daesung.

Big Bang should be in the Top 1 if it is talking about the best boy band in the Kpop world. Big Bang is very different and unique in their style of music. All of their songs are best-selling and big hits. They have won many awards, even outside of Korea. They are, for me, the top 1 in the Kpop world in influencing the youth, which includes the new product of Korea's boy groups that are gaining more attention, like BTS (don't believe me? Search), Got7, and many more groups that admire them.

They have created the influence of the Korean music foundation and are very successful.

5 TRAX
6 Super Junior Super Junior is a South Korean boy band. Formed in 2005 by producer Lee Soo-man of S.M. Entertainment, the group comprised a total of thirteen members at its peak.

I'm an ELF from India. I don't know if SuJu sees this website and reads our comments. But I want to say, even though young bands are coming to the forefront, Super Junior never fails to hit the mark. They are still number 1 with the same love from fans. They're globally popular, very handsome, and very talented. Lee Teuk is one of the reasons why SuJu is being loved. No wonder they are role models.

Super Junior is great as a boy band group and as individuals. They are the best entertainer group. They are the full package.

7 T.O.P

Choinim, or TOP, is really an amazing singer as well as an amazing rapper. He is a good actor as well, so TOP is the best of all. I really love to listen to his songs and watch his movies.
